Introducing The Net 10 Unlimited Plan

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Net10 for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

I am a member of SocialSpark and they have teamed up with Net 10 for this informative blogging opportunity about their Net 10 Unlimited Plan. 

I found out that the Net 10 Unlimited Plan is a good deal.  You can get nationwide coverage with excellent connection and unlimited text, talk, and data for only $50 a month.  I also found out that you can get a good cell phone plan with out the dreaded service contract.  With the Net 10 Unlimited Plan, there are no surprise bills or credit checks involved.  To make this deal even sweeter, Net 10 only uses trusted phone manufactures such as Nokia, L.G. Motorola, Kyocera, and Samsung.  You may choose a simple phone for your every day texting and calling needs for under $15.   They also offer phones with essential features like camera, video recorder, blue tooth capabilities and even web access for under $40.  If you would like a full QWERTY keyboard phone, slider phone, or touch screen phone with all of the basics that include great app capabilities, camera and video recorder, and web access etc then you may get one for under $60.  You should be able to find a phone with features that you desire and  with prices that fit in your budget plan.       

Net 10 also offers an Easy Minutes Plus Plan.  The Easy Minutes Plus plan offers plans that start at $15 for 200 minutes.  This would be a great plan for students or for anyone who needs a cell phone for emergency use only.   With the pay as you go plans, your minutes will carry over to the next month as long as your service remains active.  Air time can be purchased online, at a near by store, or even from your own phone.  Not only is this cost efficient but it is also convenient.  The best part about the Net 10 Plan is that you may switch between the plans each month, based on your current budget and airtime needs.  There is no penalty or fees for changing plans.

Basa Body Coconut Oil Body Lotion Review & Giveaway CLOSED


I am a member of tomoson and they have teamed up with Basa Body for this product review and giveaway.

I have received a sample of Basa Body Coconut Oil Body Lotion and I must say that I am enjoying it. I love the coconut scent of the product and it is thick and leaves your skin shiny but not greasy feeling. While trying their product I have learned that Basa Body products are made with Virgin Organic Coconut Oil. This oil is easily absorbed into the skin and contains natural antioxidants that are both antimicrobial, antibacterial, and antifungal. Basa Body products also help promote healing while giving your skin a healthier, youthful appearance. I can appreciate that the products contain no parabens, no artificial fragrances, no artificial preservatives and no harsh irritating chemicals. At Basa Body, high quality and superior body lotion is only part of their story.

The Basa Body story began years ago with a single trip to Kenya. They connected with wonderful, intelligent women who were working hard to feed their families. Their small scale enterprise was called Coast Coconut Farms. There at Coast Coconut Farms they produced virgin organic coconut oil by hand.

Basa Body was intrigued by the womens commitment, skill, and entrepreneurial spirit. Basa Body was determined to help those women tell their story and to grow their business. The result is BasaBody, named after the women of Mombasa, Kenya, where Basa's coconut oil is produced.

Basa Body is growing in the United States as well and they say they are creating jobs here too.

Giveaway time: One of you who enters this giveaway will win a full sized Basa Body Coconut Oil Body Lotion. The retail value of this is $13.95. Sponsored by Tomoson.com

Introducing: Groove Kid Nation "Music in Motion" -- Children's Music CD


I am a member of tomoson and they have teamed up with Groove Kid Nation "Music in Motion" -- Children's Music CD for this fun review. Since I am a mom of 2 school aged children who enjoy music and dancing, I took them up on this great opportunity.

Groove Kid Nation "Music in Motion" offers a great collection of kids songs. The first Groove Kid Nation release was the "Wheels on the Bus" album and the "Music in Motion" album that I am reviewing is their second release. The "Music in Motion" album contains an entirely new band of felines called the Kool Katz. While enjoying the tunes, the Kool Katz guide you and help your children to have more fun while experiencing the music.

The "Music in Motion" songs are mostly original and are all about getting children to interact with the music by drawing them into the action with the help of the Kool Katz. I love that each CD includes a 10 page illustrated booklet that features the characters from the songs and the instruments that they are playing. This illustration allows children to get more involved with the music that they hear. They can actually visualize each of the Kool Katz and pick out the instruments that they hear and place them with the character playing it. The booklet also offers a guide on what to do from silly dances, to playing air guitar or to simply nodding their heads to the beat. This added feature allows for both creativity and learning making listening to "Music in Motion" educational fun!

My children and I loved the fun and funky upbeat music of "Music in Motion". As we listened to the first song we looked at the 10 page illustrated instruction booklet that was included with our cd. Here we learned about the Kool Katz band and we picked up a few fun dance moves. As we listened to the next few songs we practiced what we learned and had a lot of fun giggly and spending quality time together.

If you would like more information on this cd, feel free to visit the Groove Kid Nation website and look around. Here you will find musical samples from the kids songs on both the "Wheels on the Bus" and "Music in Motion" releases. You may also meet Rodney Lee and his top L.A. musicians on the site as well. If you would like to purchase a "Music in Motion" cd you may do that on the website and ten percent of the wholesale price of will be donated to CARE, a leading humanitarian organization fighting poverty.

My Top 10 Holiday Planning Tips

Can you believe it? It is already October and the Holidays are sneaking up on us! Christmas will be here before we know it. For me that means a lot of shopping and list making. Oh my! How will I ever survive? To help me survive the holidays I have a getting ready for the holidays plan that I will stick to. I will share my plan with you.

1. Budget: Above all else, you need to find out how much can you afford to spend on the holidays. This number needs to include food, traveling expense, gifts and any extras. This is the big, overall dollar amount that you can really afford to spend.

2. Break it down: Once you have your total holiday dollar budget figured out from the first tip, you need to break it down into specifics. This stage includes an amount designated specifically for food, travel and people who you buy for.

3. Gift ideas: On your budget sheet you need to write down gift ideas for each person that you buy for. You might ask them what would they like the next time that you talk to or email them. It helps to have gift ideas. This will save you shopping time and it keeps them from getting something that they really don't want or need.

4. Spare gifts: Be sure and plan for a few unexpected gifts to be needed. I like to buy an extra Bath and Body Works gift set, mixed nut set, box of chocolates, or even a nice kitchen hand towel set to have on hand. You never know when you may need a thoughtful yet spare moment gift.

5. Holiday cards: Plan a nice fall day to get together with your family and have a little fun and snap a few pictures. Not only will you be making memories but you will also hopefully get a nice picture for your holiday cards. You can even let Storkie help you make personal cards that will be cherished long after the holidays are gone. Storkie has unique Christmas cards as well as stylish holiday cards.

6. Ask for help: It is ok to ask another family member or your children to help you with the holiday preparations. I always ask my husband to help when I am short handed and my children normally beg to help me.

7. Menus: Plan your holiday menu NOW! You have plenty of time to think and shop and you aren't under any pressure. If I put off menu planning too long, then I am sure to forget something. You might also want to plan for a few extra snacks and frozen appetizers to have on hand for the times that unexpected holiday guest arrive.

8. Shop Sales!! This is a key tip to staying on budget. I always shop sale adds when it comes to both food and gifts. I try not to play full price for anything.

9. Make your wish list: Even though you are an adult, you still deserve a little holiday treat also. Treating yourself to something special during the holidays is A-OK! You deserve it!

10. Relax and Enjoy the festivities! Above all else, enjoy this wonderful season with your friends and family. Life is short. Try to live each moment to its fullest.

Remember to check out Storkie for your festive Christmas cards.

Disclosure: I wrote this blog post while participating in the Storkie holiday blogging program. I received compensation for my participation. All opinions are 100% mine.

Sante Nuts: Celebrate Life Every Day

I am a mom who is always looking for ways to make our meals and snacks healthier and yet interesting at the same time. This is why I am happy to have been chosen to review Sante Nuts. I have found that Sante nuts are a great way to add some flair to salads, granola mixes, cereals, yogurts and they are even great enjoyed alone.

Sante Nuts chooses only the very best nuts from handpicked growers. They roast them slowly by hand and in small batches using a secret method passed down through generations. I was sent 4 flavors of Sante Nuts for my review. First, I was able to enjoy the garlic almonds. These almonds have a Zesty garlic, cayenne and black pepper flavor that give these almonds their savory punch. They also have a touch of pure cane sugar makes them irresistible. I will say that these are the zestiest almonds that I have ever eaten. They are fresh and a little zingy. I chose to enjoy these garlic almonds as a snacky by themself, although they would be great with a chex mix.

The Sante Nuts candied pecans were a hit with my children. They said that they reminded them of the pecans that they pick at their grandparents house but they are sweeter and take a lot less work! These buttery pecan halves are kissed with pure cane sugar are deliciously addictive, my kids will definitely second that!

The candied walnuts were slightly sweet also as they are lightly coated with pure cane sugar. I added these Sante Nuts to a dinner salad and topped it with a touch of raspberry vinergrette for a great side to our dinner. The nuts are fresh and added a fun, delicious crunch to our meal.

Last but not least, we enjoyed the roasted salted pecans. They are delicious: pure and simple. The mammoth pecan halves are roasted and salted to perfection. I used these pecans in an after noon snack mix that I made for the kids. I mixed the Sante roasted salted pecans with cheerios and yogurt covered raisins. The kids enjoyed it and even asked for more.

Not only do Sante Nuts taste great and compliment meals, but their spice recipes are made with all natural quality ingredients. Sante Nuts only use the highest quality of nuts available that they roast by hand in small batches. Lastly, the company uses a secret technique that minimizes the amount of oil the nuts absorb during the roasting process. All of these steps produce a crunchy and fresh nut product.

I am happy to pass on a discount code for 25% off of your next Sante Nuts purchase. If you would like to take advantage of this offer, please visit SanteNuts.Com and enter coupon code 2011-Blog-038 during the check out. This coupon is valid through December the 16th, 2011.

Disclosure: I have received a product sample of the 4 flavors of Sante Nuts mentioned above so that I may complete an honest review of their product. No other compensation was exchanged.

Mixbook Holiday Cards Review



I am a member of tomoson and they have teamed up with Mixbook for this fun review opportunity. I have received a set of 30 Mixbook Custom 5x7 Flat Holiday Cards for this review campaign.

I love sending out personlized greeting cards during the holidays. I find that sharing pictures of my family on these types of cards serve a double purpose. Not only do you get to send your best holiday wishes to loved ones, but you may send them updated family pictures as well. I know that these types of holiday cards are my favorite to give and receive. This is why I was so excited for the Mixbook Holiday Cards review.


I found that creating my holiday cards on Mixbook was extremely easy. I simply went to mixbook.com, found the holiday cards on the left side of the page and clicked. I then chose to create my cards from their one of their hundreds of fully customizable designs. Since I had the number of pictures that I wanted to use in my mind, I searched for a photo layout with that many picture spots on it. Once you choose how many cards that you would like to order and the type of paper that you want them printed on, you then click to personalize your holiday cards. You do need to create a log in so that your project information can be saved. Then you may customize your card. Before you start your project, they even have a well explained guided tour to help you with your card creating process.

I am very pleased with the Mixbook holiday photo cards that I have received. Not only were they easy to create but they arrived very quickly also. They were delivered in a cardboard box, not in a mailing envelope. This packaging shows me that Mixbook cares about their customers and that they take pride in their product. They want it delived to you in mint condition.

Here is a little bit more about the company: Mixbook is a leading photo products company that helps people create custom photo books, cards, and calendars. Whether you are starting from scratch, or using one of their thousands of professionally designed templates, every Mixbook product is 100% customizable. With Mixbook, you can truly Make It Yours™.

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of T.G.I. FRiDAY'S for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

I am a member of SocialSpark and they have teamed up with T.G.I. FRiDAY'S "Entrees For One" for this fun blogging opportunity.  As a family, we enjoy dining out at our local T.G.I. FRiDAY'S and now I'm even more excited about being able to prepare and enjoy  their T.G.I. FRiDAY’S “Entrées for One”  in my own home.

You can now bring the fun of T.G.I. FRiDAY'S home with their new "Entrees For One".  These new entrees come in delicious flavors such as Grilled Chicken Mac and Cheese, Prime Rib Stroganoff, Sizzling Steak Fajitas, Sizzling Chicken Fajitas, Chicken and Broccoli Alfredo, Cajun-Style Chicken Alfredo,  and even Creamy Chicken Pasta Carbonara.  The new line of T.G.I.

FRiDAY’S “Entrées for One” should definitely solve your lunch or dinner  woes and shake up your freezer at the same time. 

Entrées For One

My family has had the pleasure of trying the new  T.G.I. FRiDAY’S “Entrées for One”.  It was fun deciding which of the 9 new flavors we would choose to try first.  I let my husband choose which flavor to try first and he didn't disappoint me when he chose the Sizzling Chicken Fajitas entree for one.  I know that he enjoys chicken fajitas and I wasn't surprised when he popped this entree into the microwave as soon as we got home from the store.  We loved that it took less than 5 minutes to prepare this hearty meal.  The portions were large enough to fill him up and to give me a taste too.  The tortillas and cheesy rice make this meal complete.  We are excited about trying the other 8 T.G.I.

Halloween Smiley Cookies Review



I am a member of tomoson and they have teamed up with Smiley Cookie for this deliciously fun review!

Smiley Cookie is offering fun Halloween Smiley Cookies this fall and I had the pleasure of trying these for myself and my family.

When I host a product review, I try to look at all aspects of the ordering and delivery process of the product as well as the actual product itself. I will say that I am very impressed with the presentation and delivery of our Smiley Cookies.
I love the gift box that my Halloween Cookies came in. Upon opening the gift box, I felt like I was not only getting a treat, but it was a very special treat. I had to show the kids as soon as I opened the box because I knew that they would be as excited about this review as I was. Inside the box was a very nicely packaged dozen of beautiful Halloween Smiley Cookies. All of my cookies were in perfect shape, none were broken and they were delivered a few days earlier than promised also.

Not only are these Halloween Cookies big, fresh and delicious but they are also beautifully presented. I would be proud to take these to our school for a Halloween Party Snack or to put them in a Halloween Gift Basket. I know that my kids would love to share them with others too.

You may find Smiley Cookies on facebook. Smiley Cookies Facebook members will receive a 20% off coupon good on their Halloween Cookies.

Renuzit Holiday Fresh Accents Review and Giveaway CLOSED

I am a member of Purex Insiders and they have teamed up with their sister brand Renuzit air fresheners for this fun review and giveaway opportunity. I chose to take them up on this blogging opportunity because I enjoy trying new products and sharing my finds with you.

Renuzit now has a stylish new air freshener product on the market, the Renuzit Holiday Fresh Accents. This new air freshener comes in a versatile satin nickel finished two-sided holiday design display container that will blend nicely with any decor. The Renuzit Holiday Fresh Accents are available in two holiday fragrances: Winter Berry and Festive Snow. I have been fortunate enough to receive one of each of these great products to try and I will say that I am amazed at the scents so far. The packages came with a scratch and sniff sticker on the front and that alone is enough scent to last a few days. Once I open the product, I am supposed to have 30 days of continuous fragrance and odor elimination. I love that there are no plugs, batteries or flames needed for this air freshner also. There is no need to squirt anything either. How great is that! I also like that the new Renuzit Holiday Fresh Accents is priced at around $2.00 each. I feel that this is a great price for this new product.

Giveaway time: One of my readers will get the chance to try the Renuzit Holiday Fresh Accents for themself.

I am a One2One Network member and they have teamed up with Hanes for this informative blogging opportunity. I have chosen to participate in this blogging campaign because I feel that this is an easy way for someone to participate in helping raise much needed funds for breast cancer awareness.

Hanes® is launching their comfort-sharing Facebook App for Breast Cancer Awareness. The new Hanes Virtual Comfort application will allow users to share comfort with those who need it the most. Facebook fans of Hanes can now personalize and send free virtual comfort packages to friends and family by an easy to use digital tool on the Hanes Facebook page. For each virtual comfort package sent, Hanes will donate $1 (up to $25,000) to the National Breast Cancer Foundation, Inc. This is to promote early cancer detection and provide mammograms for those in need.

The free virtual Comfort Package can be sent from the Pink tab on the Hanes page. The Comfort Package is fully customizable with photos, videos, recipes, T-shirt designs, music and messages. Hanes created the Comfort Packages to bring a smile and help spread comfort to fans’ social networks in a small, but impactful, way. As a longtime supporter of breast cancer awareness, Hanes has made cash and in-kind donations totaling $1 million since 2009 and is donating up to $125,000 to NBCF this year.

Introducing: T.G.I. FRiDAY'S "Entrees For One"

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of T.G.I. FRiDAY'S for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

I am a member of SocialSpark and they have teamed up with T.G.I. FRiDAY'S "Entrees For One" for this fun review and blogging opportunity.  We enjoy dining out at our T.G.I. FRiDAY'S and now I am even more excited about their T.G.I. FRiDAY’S “Entrées for One”.   

Did you know that you can bring the fun of T.G.I. FRiDAY'S home now with their new "Entrees For One"?  The entrees come in the delicious flavors such as Grilled Chicken Mac and Cheese, Prime Rib Stroganoff, Sizzling Chicken Fajitas, Sizzling Steak Fajitas, Cajun-Style Chicken Alfredo, Chicken and Broccoli Alfredo, and even Creamy Chicken Pasta Carbonara.  This new line of T.G.I. FRiDAY’S “Entrées for One”  is inspired by the bold and fun flavors of the T.G.I. FRiDAY'S restaurants.  They should definitely solve your lunch or dinner  woes and shake up your freezer at the same time.

For review purposes, I was sent a coupon for 1 T.G.I. FRiDAY’S “Entrées for One”.  I had my husband use the coupon because I wanted to see which of the 9 new flavors he would choose to try first.  He did not disappoint me when he chose the Sizzling Chicken Fajitas entree for one.  I know that he enjoys chicken fajitas and I wasn't surprised when he popped this entree into the microwave as soon as we got home from the store.  He loved that it took less than 5 minutes to prepare this hearty meal.  The portions were large enough to fill him up.  The tortillas and cheesy rice make this meal complete.  He is excited about trying the other 8 T.G.I. FRiDAY’S “Entrées for One” soon.  Yay! This means less cooking for me.   

Right now you may participate in more T.G.I. FRiDAY'S fun.  They are hosting a Fun Freezer contest on facebook.  To enter this contest you may decorate your home freezer and upload a picture of it on facebook.   If you are lucky, you may even win one of the cool prizes offered.  For more information click here or go to http://www.facebook.com/TGIFridaysFreezer.

Which of the 9 new T.G.I. FRiDAY’S “Entrées for One” will you enjoy first?
